Noted environmentalist Newton Ancarrow documented and photographed over 400 species of wildflowers along the banks of the James River in Richmond, Virginia from 1968 to 1971. He created a slideshow that he gave to garden clubs, women's groups, and other civic organizations. He also typed out the script of his presentation, and recorded it on audio cassette. Using the audio, his script, and digitized images of the slides, VCU Libraries has been able to recreate his hour-long slideshow. For more information about Ancarrow and his work, see the online exhibit and the Ancarrow Wildflower Digital Archive.
